Thank god their were people like Doctor Wayland Paul Matt, who were out filming all the train action with those trusty 8mm cameras as we would have been the poorer for missing those great shots of SP Steam before it disappeared for ever. I really enjoyed the his placing shots, especially the cab forwards. A must for any steam fan.

Very entertaining video with considerable unique content. Lots of footage of locomotives and places I've not seen before (and I've seen PLENTY of SP steam videos). Daylights and cab-aheads are present, of course, but for a change, there's a nice emphasis on the SP Mountains, 2-10-2s and smaller locomotives! Also a treat to see GS-4s in solid black livery. Good quality footage for its time.
